Why do they always use the term "allegedly" when a LEO is involved? Either he did it or he didn't, am I right? I guess LEO's are the only ones innocent until proven guilty these days. The rest of us are shot until proven innocent.


Here in the UK, 'allegedly' accompanies every report of an un-trialled crime. Before the trial, using absolutes could potentially prejudice the jury. The defence could argue the defendant hasn't been given a fair trial because the jury were told by the media he was guilty.

It seems to be the case in America too, cop or not. I guess some internet sources are freer and looser about it though.

Anyhow, it this idiot has indeed done what he allegedly has, I can no reason in the world not to charge him with attempted murder.

Lol, she almost got the right to remain silent. The silence of the grave.

Ugh. Hopefully he ends up getting charged with attempted murder. This is uncalled for.

Unlikely, as explained earlier, murder, of any degree, requires some notion of premeditation. This scumbag will still get charged with a felony which carries a very serious penalty in Texas.

How can they allow guys like this to be in law enforcement and trust them with a gun? They need to have a better background check on a person's character, and psychological testing on their ability to manage stress and anger, before giving them a badge and a gun.

No matter what you read in the papers or hear on the news, cops ARE in fact largely above the law. There are two separate sets of rules and standards for cops and civies. Like you mention, other way round, she would be charged with attempted murder IF she survived his return-fire. I'll be surprised if this ever sees the inside of a courtroom.

Love the way they say…


An off-duty Texas cop got upset at a woman for cutting him off and allegedly fired his gun into her window,


Its okaaay, he was just shooting at her car.

Lets minimize events if a cop is involved. Even an off duty one.


Don't forget its all alleged. She's probably lying about it. Bullet wound? Couldn't those marks be self inflicted?

Not to say they don't say "alleged" in other cases in the media, its just that its so emphasized here.

I haven't seen the wound. A hi velocity graze from a bullet can't be faked. It has a unique shred appearance. Hit yourself with a high speed grinder for a moment and look at that, lol.

But you get my point.

Wonder if they drug tested him after this "incident"? Sounds like a serious case of 'roid road rage.
Is there a way to check and see what charges other road rage incidents in Texas have produced?

Are you kidding? Most times if a cop is caught driving drunk they arrange for it to take half a day for his blood to be tested. And a lot of areas, the police unions negotiate no steroid testing, ever.

This is who they're selecting for.

Aggravated Assault pled down to a lesser charge. Hell, who wants to take bets he won't even lose his job? Maybe just move him to a desk job? I'm smelling a roid rage defense that will yield him some shrink time with pay.

Shoot at a cop and you'll be lucky to ever make it to court.... if you do, you'll have a laundry list of charges what include attempted murder, genocide, terrorism, conspiracy against the universe etc.

Cop shoots woman in head and gets charged with ASSAULT??????
